Iran’s President Denies Requesting Meeting with Trump

"We are not isolated", Rouhani, speaking in Persian with English translation to Iranian and foreign journalists at a hotel conference room across from the United Nations, said today.

"I didn't expect that reaction", Trump said.

In his speech, Trump said the U.S.is a "stronger, safer and richer country" than when he took office in January 2017.

Speaking before entering talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in New York, Trump said that it was a "dream" of his to bring about a peaceful solution to a conflict that has eluded several of his predecessors.

"It risks a unsafe escalation, so we need to see further decisive action in this council to tackle both the transit and proliferation of these technologies and increase the costs for those responsible", May said. "Up until such time when we keep reaping the benefits promised within that agreement for our nation and our people, we will remain in the agreement".

Dan Mahaffee, senior vice president and director of policy at the Center for the Study of Congress and the Presidency, told Xinhua that "in his speech, President Trump drew on his own belief in American sovereignty, as well as the advice being given to him by advisors like John Bolton and Stephen Miller".

"We need to build together a long-term strategy to manage the crisis that can not be reduced to a policy of sanctions and containment of Iran", said Macron.

After his administration pulled the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal negotiated by the Obama administration and several other countries, Trump added: "Additional sanctions will resume November 5 and more will follow".

Trump had called Kim a "rocket man" bent on nuclear destruction in his United Nations speech previous year.

He noted that he USA decision to withdraw from the JCPOA was not agreed upon by other countries.

"They do not want me or us to win because I am the first president ever to challenge China on trade". His toughest words were directed at Iran, however.


"Iran's leaders sow chaos, death and destruction", Trump said.

He also said there needed to be a "basis for new negotiations, created first by the framework" of Security Council resolutions on the nuclear deal, in order to address "the issue of the increased scope and accuracy of Iran's ballistic missiles".

Trump also accused Iran, along with Russian Federation, of enabling President Bashar Al-Assad to carry out his "butchery" in Syria.

He added that in the 16 meetings he had had with heads of states on the trip to NY, they all had expressed their support for Iran nuclear deal.

"They're denuclearising North Korea".

And at that moment, the world finally was laughing at us. "We do not intend to allow our sanctions to be evaded by Europe or anybody else". "We tried isolation and it only gave the most conservative forces in Iran more power", she told reporters.

US President Donald Trump and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani exchanged taunts at the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday with Trump vowing more sanctions against Tehran and Rouhani suggesting his American counterpart suffers from a "weakness of intellect".

"We reject the ideology of globalism", Trump said. It'll be announced. We're having a press conference today. Barack Obama presided over two meetings in 2009 and 2014.

Rouhani noted that the United States wanted to turn the UNSC session against Iran by changing the agenda of the meeting, while something different finally turned out and the session instead focused on non-proliferation.

"At the UN General Assembly, we witnessed that the great majority of world leaders endorsed the JCPOA as a diplomatic achievement, which means that the USA has been left isolated", Rouhani said at a new press conference on Wednesday.
